In the first quarter of 2014 Engineering Scotland companies, especially the medium and small one have performed well. Export orders have improved over last year and improvements have also been reported for output volumes which is again more than last year. Engineering machinery Scotland manufacturers that are engaged in manufacturing of special purpose machinery for a wide range of applications have done quite well and there is a general sense of optimism around people associated to the industry. Companies that are into manufacturing of machineries for Oil & Gas; Automotive; Offshore Renewables; Aerospace; Nuclear and Coal are showing good results continuously for past few years.
Engineering machinery Scotland companies manufacture machines for varied industries and therefore their product range is as varied as the industries they serve. They vary in shapes, sizes and usages. For example, some of the products engineering Scotland companies manufacture for their customers in Oil & Gas include seals for pipes including pipe and clamps; flanges; hubs; rings etc. For nuclear industry they make thermal probes to be used in the distillation tanks used for storage of nuclear waste. A range of apparatus for wave machines is manufactured for offshore renewable clients. Aerospace industry demands aircraft components for fuselage and wing assembly and Scottish engineering companies are quite well known for them.
As engineering machinery Scotland companies have all purpose CNC engineering workshops they can manufacture practically all types of components needed for any types of industries once they have the design with them. Engineering Scotland companies also take up programming jobs as they are equipped with some powerful 3D CAD/CAM packages for designing and manufacturing of any types of products and components. Because of this they can manufacture machine parts having complex shapes with ease. Once they receive the 2D designs of the parts they can replicate it into 3D models to ensure accurate machining. This also ensures high level of conformity to the requirements and it is widely appreciated by their clients. They have highly sophisticated systems that can receive CAD data exchange standards such as VDA-FS, IGES and DXF format to be able to work on a wide platform.
Clients of engineering Scotland companies prefer one-stop solutions for their jobs. They have latest coordinate measuring machine to inspect the products with great accuracy for testing. Engineering machinery Scotland also have an NDT or non-destructive testing facility and therefore can offer the entire range of service to their clients. If they need to take up magnetic particle inspection or liquid penetrant inspection they are able to carry out them too.
Repairing and maintenance is something that you should leave to engineering Scotland. They are well respected for their qualified engineering workforce that is always ready to serve you with commitment. If you need full package for each manufactured part with the certificate of conformance, engineering machinery Scotland companies can give you that as well because their processes are system driven and conform to international standardisation. They can also supply the inspection and dimensional reports that you may need for legal reasons.
